NO MORE CLOWN FACE, APPLY PIGMENTS CORRECTLY!!!

EYES- Use a light to medium shade and gently pat on the lower lid. This is great when you are short on time and need something that looks good. Simply dip a flat, stiff brush into the pigment and place in the lid. Press the brush into the pigment and tap off any excess. You can keep the color below the crease or bring it up slightly past the crease. Use a fluffy dome brush to blend out the crease and feather out any harsh lines. This adds a perfect and easy pop to your eyes. CHEEKS – These work wonders as highlights for the top of your cheekbones and for adding dimension to your look. To use, dip your brush into the pigment and place in...

Getting Good Sleep (Part 2): Disconnect Before You Disconnect

Can't sleep? Not maintaining a healthy night's sleep? There are simple easy things you can do in your room to get you quality AND quantity of sleep. RULE #1: Remove ALL electronics from your room. NO television. NO computer. NO iPad or Kindle or any tablet. These distractions are keeping you from your sleep. I hear people say it all the time, "I need the T.V. to fall asleep." When you watch television from bed you're keeping your mind from winding down and focusing on relaxation. Instead, you're focusing on "just another episode". If it's the sounds you need, there are amazing Pandora stations that have soft, relaxing melodies to cater to your sleepy self. (I like "Beach Bar Lounge" and "Yoga Radio") As for the computer, NO...

PUTTING AN END TO OLD WIVES TALES ABOUT HAIR

Tis' the season where urban legends, myths, and mysteries are constantly being circulated. But don't let that suck you into the many old wives tales of hair. I am here to dismantle some of the many tales we have heard throughout the years. You can do chemical services while pregnant. Only your hair follicle will absorb the chemicals of relaxers and hair dyes, not you or your baby. Remember though, being that your hormones are changing; your hair may process differently. Relaxing and coloring your hair can be done on the same day, only if the color is Semi-Permanent. Your hair will not grow back thicker when shaving certain areas of your body, such as mustache, eyebrows, or arms and legs. However when shaving the face, you can...

How to prep your skin for Flawless make up Application!

So the key to naturally flawless glowing skin begins with fantastic skin preparation. Skin does not look its happiest when it is dry, tired, cracked or oily. If you prep the skin on your face correctly before you add your actual makeup, you will not need as much makeup to "fix" any given skin situation you might be faced with allowing an opportunity for your "natural, flawless glowing skin" to shine through! 1. Begin with applying a toner on face and neck, followed by a moisturizing cream (I like Embryolisse Lait Cream) also applied to your face and neck. You need to assess whether or not your skin is oily or dry and find a face cream suitable for your specific skin type. If your skin...
